Another in Corning’s long line of innovative optical fiber products, Corning® TXF® optical fiber combines both ultra-low loss and a larger effective area. TXF fiber is compliant with ITU-T Recommendation G.654.E, a category of advanced fibers for long-haul terrestrial networks with a cut-off wavelength shifted to just below the loss-minimized C-band region.
The superior attributes of TXF fiber allow for the provision of an additional network margin that can be leveraged to allow reliable, high-data-rate transmissions over longer spans and extended reach. This allows long-haul networks with TXF fiber to be designed more efficiently, reducing the need for amplification sites, which is particularly important in remote territories with challenging terrains. TXF fiber also minimizes the number of needed regenerators, even as higher data rate upgrades are planned with more stringent OSNR requirements.
TXF fiber can be purchased natural or colored. Fibers with Corning® ColorPro® identification technology, our coloring solution, enable cable manufacturers to reduce cost, minimize footprint, and leverage an enhanced product offering.
